Do you like art and, also, drugs? I sure do. Generation X by NY-based artist Edie Nadelhaft is comprised of 9 individual, over-sized glass capsule sculptures — each filled with colorful plastic balls and emblazoned with familiar Social Media acronyms and emoticons — which are part of the artist’s Better Living Thru Chemistry series. You can see more of Nadelhaft’s work from that series at This Link!

How Insane is this thing? I stole this image from a fan of Worleyigig.com’sFaceBook Fan Page. I have no idea where it came from, but it exists, and so it much be a immortalized as a Bacon Thing of The Day!
Ponder this with me; why would somebody who’s owed me money for years without ever making any attempt to reconcile that debt, who only contacts me when he needs a band’s publicist’s contact info, and who in general has acted like an unrepentant douche bag to me want to be my friend on FaceBook? I mean, WTF is up with that? Do I have amnesia? Am I Jesus? Am I desperate for validation? Similarly, have I reached out and asked to be “Friends” with the pinhead jock who bullied me all through high school just because he’s on FaceBook now? I don’t think so. I don’t even accept Friend Requests from ex-boyfriends without some kind of wildly conciliatory hatchet-burying going on up front. So why would I want to be “Friends” with an opportunistic scum loser who owes me money? I would really like to know. Answers can be left in the comments section, thanks.
